Idaho History at Home

Share Your Story

Idaho and the world are grappling with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of you might be keeping your feelings about this crisis in your personal journal or you are posting to social media channels for the world to see, but we ask that you share your story with us.

Although record keeping has changed drastically over the last 100 years, the everyday stories of Idahoans remain as relevant to our collecting initiatives today as they did in 1907 when the Idaho Legislature created our agency.

Please help us deliver on our mission and help us capture the stories of how Idahoans like you are reacting, responding, and defining community in new ways during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Idaho State Historical Society will add the stories and reflections submitted to our agency’s records, housed at the Idaho State Archives. Future generations will be able to use these submissions to understand what this moment in Idaho history was really like.

Through resources that connect us deeply to our state, its story, and each other, the Idaho State Historical Society is committed to helping Idahoans, at home, during this unprecedented time. Please enjoy the wide range of free resources for research, education, and fun!
